John Tosco, Tosco Music @Work Podcast

    • Management

This is @Work with Dr. Elizabeth Teagarden. For over a decade, Dr. Teagarden has worked with small to medium enterprises to create more drama free workplaces. Here on the @Work podcast, she speaks with presidents, owners and executives of companies about their unique workforce ecosystems and how they create great places to work.
John Tosco is a man of many talents, musician, guitar teacher and businessman. But if I had to put a single label on John's great contribution to the Charlotte, North Carolina music scene, it would be as impresario. More than 30 years ago, Tosco music was born out of a love of two things music and community. What started with a circle of friends gathering in his living room to share songs has grown into a nonprofit organization that has substantial community impact across six distinct programs, the Tasco Music Party, FabFest Beatles Tribute, the Tosco Open Mic, musicians support, community outreach and scholarships. In any given year, the Tosco organization produces over 100 live events at 27 locations throughout the city, putting more than 300 performers on the stage. More than half of those performances are for seniors in our community. Another 200 performers take the stage through the open mics and the Tosco Scholarship Fund Awards nearly $15,000 to several dozen youth and adult musicians.
John Tosco is our guest today on the @Work podcast.
